Registered by sraps (Alistek) on 2011-06-09

This blueprint has been moved from report_openoffice project:
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/report-openoffice/+spec/openoffice-plugin

We need to tweak Tiny's OpenOffice plugin in order to make it working with report_openoffice engine.
This wiil allow:
1- experts and developers, who know how to write python sentences, to save time;
2- noob users to use this system without any advanced python knowledge.

Whiteboard

At this moment Tiny's OOo Report Designer:
* Is not really GPL software;
* As I have tested one, it is not of the best quality (bugs and serious limitations);

If it is not being released as a free software even after several other reporting engines is already available, so I conclude that this is just to be considered as temporary workaround, and it is definitely better to be recreated from ground.

I have done a bunch of work on this a few months back - quite a bit of the openerp report_openoffice is GPL as it takes from other GPL libraries. I got as far as successfully creating a for each entry after connecting to the database. After which it failed, but you are right the code is really awful.
